Breakfast anyone?

Yum Yum, I made breakfast this morning. I'm a member of Knit 'n Bake over at Ravelry. I happened upon a post about scones and it made me flash back to Thanksgiving 2 years ago. My family got together at a cabin(used loosely) up in MD. Well my Aunt made these Delicious scones that everyone gobbled up. and I forgot to get the recipe from her... So anyways while reading the above mentioned forum I started getting hungry. I put it off till this morning where I whipped up some scones. I smooshed a few recipes (found at allrecipes) together and made my own scone recipe up. So I decided to share it with you! In fact I'm eating one right now. (they're great as a snack too!)

1 C all purpose flour
1 C whole wheat flour
1/2 C sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 C sour cream
1/2 tsp cinnamon

2. cream butter, sugar, sour cream and egg.
3. add vanilla, baking powder, soda, salt cinnamon and flours. Don't over mix
4. add pecans and cranberries until they are just mixed in.
5. it should be a clumpy mess dump it out on a floured surface.

Looks yummy, but I hate cranberries. Can you substitute something else? I need to get in the kitchen and make some bread. I made pizzas a few weeks ago with your recipe. I loved them, but Richard was like, they don't taste like Domino's. Well, duh! LOL!
